Make the Most of Your Time at Home

We've rounded up seven easy DIY ideas to inspire your next home improvement project. Whether you're looking to make functional fixes or add some fun touches to your home, there are many ways to easily and affordably update your space. 


These seven DIY home improvement projects can help you fall in love with your home again:

  1. Paint Your Walls 
    Whether you choose a bright white to make a small room feel larger or an inky blue for a dramatic effect, there's nothing like a fresh coat of paint to make a space feel new. Feeling adventurous? Add a pop of color to your ceiling too.

  2. Spruce Up Your Porch 
    A new doormat and pretty planter can lend your front entrance a fresh new look and curb appeal. 
     
  3. Pressure Wash Your Exterior
    You'll be amazed by how much dirt and grime washes away from your house, porch, patio, and driveway.
     
  4. Updated Cabinet Knobs and Pulls
    New hardware can make an older kitchen or bathroom vanity feel modern again. Look for an updated finish that speaks to your style. 

  5. Rearrange Your Furniture
    With a few shifts, you may find a space configuration that works better for your space. Don't be afraid to mix furniture and accessories from different parts of your home. 

  6. Get Organized
    De-clutter and take stock of your belongings. A few floating shelves or pretty wicker baskets can make a big impact on your storage needs. 

  7. Make Your Home Smarter 
    From lightbulbs that connect to an app to smart thermostats and camera-enabled doorbells, some new technology can help introduce greater function to your home.
